It’s March first and I have made a decision. Starting today and for the next 3 months, I will do a blog post a day as an exercise in personal investment. I have been talking, thinking, longing to do this for a year but terrified of the commitment to myself. It’s fascinating how easily I commit my time and energy to others often leaving what matters to me personally behind, like an unfinished masterpiece left leaning against the wall in the foreground.
I am no longer going to place myself in the foreground. I write in my notes on my phone, I think constantly of ideas and dreams that somehow seem not meant for me. I have not trusted myself to ensure my own success, but its time. Time to voice what matters to me; words matter to me, thoughts matter to me, art matters to me, people matter to me.
Now some of you I know follow me and will get a daily update, if this drives you crazy for the sheer email volume it creates I won’t hold it against you to unfollow. However I ask you instead to help me. I know I won’t be perfect but I want to be honest. Cheer me on or tell me…“hey, where the hell have you been?”!
There will be poetry, quotes, art, observations and gratitudes abound. I make no guarantee you’ll like it all, but I do guarantee it will be meaningful and honest… oh and I promise I’ll work to keep it brief!
So today…It’s time to trust in me…
I hope you’ll come for the ride!
